I am drafting this blog post on the new MacBook Air, which finally arrived yesterday. It's so... light. Expecting a quiet day today, other than a trip to see a matinee of the new Muppet movie courtesy of the good offices of [info]mlerules. I invited [info]the_child along, but she doesn't have Muppetlove in her heart, and didn't seem enthused. Otherwise laying low, reading, and shaking any potential bugs out of the new laptop before I transition the old laptop to its new role.

Last night N— came over with an apple pie (or possibly a very big apple tart) and some shortbread for me. She and [info]the_child made peanut brittle, then they watched Time Bandits while I fell asleep. One of my favorite movies, but I didn't make it much past the Napoleon/musical scene. Which admittedly is one of the funniest things I've ever seen on film.

Tomorrow we have family Christmas in the late afternoon, and I continue to lay low. Just trying to stay ahead of my rebellious lower GI and get lots of sleep going into this last chemo session next weekend. I can see the end from here. And man, do I really want to get back to writing.
